Early Killzone 2 Reviews Looking Good 140

Posted by Soulskill
from the console-exclusivity-wars dept.
Reviews are beginning to appear for Guerrilla Games' upcoming first-person shooter, Killzone 2, a PS3 exclusive that has received a great deal of hype over the past several months. The reviews are mostly complimentary, but not overwhelmingly so; Ars Technica says it has "some of the best graphics yet seen on the PS3," and is a "solid take on the war-gaming genre." They also acknowledge that this is the latest game being held up as a standard for how good PS3 games can be, though the PS3 may not need such validation anymore. Edge Magazine is critical of the story, saying, "you could play the levels in random order to little ill-effect," but found the gameplay redeeming enough to warrant a 7/10. Concerns were raised early about the quality of the controls, but Guerrilla Games has affirmed that no changes will be made. Though the game won't be out for about a week yet, rumors of some fairly typical DLC plans are already cropping up. Giant Bomb recorded some video showcasing Killzone 2's multiplayer a while back.

I guess it shouldn't be so surprising that second-hand game sales are flying up while new games sales are going down. This article talks about it, but a couple of things about the story are a bit odd... http://www.goodgearguide.com.au/article/276261/boost_second-hand_games_sales_upside_global_financial_crisis?fp=4194304&fpid=1 Plus how come they didn't talk to a studio?"

Civilization, as we know it, will end sometime this evening. See SYSNOTE tomorrow for more information.
